The St.Louis Blues really are the one's to beat right now.. Like em or not they're on a roll..

 

I told you...once they fired fat ass they became one of the best teams in the league.  I have no idea why Hitchcock is hired anywhere.  He's cancer.  You watch, he'll ruin Dallas even more than they already are.  

 

I'd love to see the Blues make the conference finals against Edmonton.

That's a lot of theatres needed to occupy those films this weekend.

Unforgettable is the only one that will make more than $10M next weekend and even that's not a guarantee. I doubt Free Fire will even get 1K theaters.

Unforgettable seem highly forgettable (I guarantee every review will say that...) mostly because it seems like a movie that's already been made a hundred times.

It's going wide.....I know that could mean as little as 800, but I think it gets at least 1500.

But it'll do well.  You can say that about a lot of films.

The ad push for Unforgettable hasn't been aggressive enough for it to hit more than low double digits. Movie feels like a Screen Gems release that somehow ended up at Warner Bros.

 

Although it would be nice if it did well just for Katherine Heigl's sake, especially coming off of a TV show that got pulled after just two episodes. Yeesh.

Exactly.  It feels like those movies aimed at black audiences we get every September that are just remakes of Fatal Attraction.

I read 700 theaters for Free Fire a couple of weeks ago.  That could have changed. 

 

Even then it would be the 2nd wide o/w release for A24.  The Witch is the only one with 2046 theaters. The current second biggest is Tusk with 600, the third is Dark Places with 151.   They've only had 6 films that even eventually went 800+ theaters.

TV rights are serious money still? 

 

 

Yeah very serious especially with the streaming sites in play for additional content to complement their original offerings.

Free Fire is going to bomb unfortunately, it did less than £500k on OW here, and disappeared quickly thereafter. Shame at it was great.

A24 is giving it a zero marketing push so I doubt it was gonna do much this weekend. In fact, I'm confident The Lost City of Z will make more.

Hoping this upcoming dry spell might encourage a few theaters expansions for Your Name.

I kinda doubt they'll take up many screens tho, none of them look like major players. Unforgettable should crack $10m but that's about it.

Unlikely since it dropped 59% this weekend.
